Culture & Media Rules
Welcome to Culture & Media, PC's best and most underrated forum, and thanks for stopping by; have a drink, post in a few threads, but overall, enjoy yourself! Below are the Culture & Media rules, notable threads in this forum as well as a guide on what type of threads go here. Make sure to read them all so your tenure in the forum is long!
→ All global PokeCommunity rules apply here!
This means everything from the 'four words, twenty-five character rule' to the 'no double posting' rule applies here. If you are unfamiliar with the PokeCommunity rules or just need a quick refresher, you can find them here. Make sure to give them a thorough look over!
This is pretty much a suggestion, but make sure to give a full, fleshed out answer to threads that really answers the topic at hand and could possibly make people think and perhaps consider what you feel is quality entertainment!
Listing is still not OK! - You can choose to withhold some details from your post if you're just not the kind of person that elaborates a ton, but in topics such as general movie or music/band/artist discussion, listing your favorites/least favorites and leaving it with no further explanation, etc is still not OK, and you are expected to give some sort of worthwhile response.
→ Technology and video game discussion does not belong!
While this is a forum all about entertainment, we have separate forums for discussion regarding Technology (and Internet!) and Video Games. You can, however, still post anything else that involves music, movies, television series/cartoons, and anything having to do with Japanese entertainment.
→ Single video threads do not belong!
Threads that have little to no purpose other than to share/discuss random Youtube videos/video creators do not belong here. If it has become a vendetta of yours to share these videos with the world, post them in the Random Youtube Video thread in Technology & Internet.
You can, however, embed videos! - You may embed a Youtube video if you’re starting or contributing to a thread about a certain band or artist and you want to have aid in explaining your opinions. As long as your thread still has a certain element of discussion present, it is appropriate. Please be courteous to members that have systems that don't provide enough memory to satisfy the needs of loading multiple Youtube videos on a page at once. After the first post, or after one or two videos have already been embedded to get the point across, link your videos rather than embed them.
You can, however, advertise your music! - If you’re in a band or looking to make it big in the world as an artist and want to showcase your skills, Culture & Media is the place for it. You're heavily encouraged to make threads about your entertainment exploits here, and you are allowed to advertise them here as well. Just please avoid making a thread to advertise your YouTube channel; threads should be dedicated to entertainment discussion or discussion of a homogeneous collection of your original media creations.
→ Use the search feature before creating threads!
Use the search feature located in the top right corner of the forum section to search for a topic similar to the focal point of your thread idea. The thirty day revival rule applies, so make sure that your thread - or one very similar - has not already been created. Duplicate threads will be closed.
→ Be nice, friendly and polite to others
This is more of a given than anything, but this is a nice forum and I’d like to keep it this way for as long as possible. If you have any problems with what certain members are doing/saying, either report the post in question or PM me directly, and I will deal with the problem accordingly.
Non-compliance with any of these rules will lead to delete posts, to warnings, which eventually leads to infractions, bans, etc, but I'm confident none of which will have to occur, because I know everyone will follow the rules like good little members! :]
If you have any questions or concerns with any of these rules, please contact the Moderator, Minzy, and I will assist you in any way possible.Important LinksCulture & Media Daily Chit-Chat: Just watched something and want to talk about it quickly? This thread's all yours. Additionally, user recommendations for various forms of entertainment may be posted here as well.
Football/Soccer Discussion Thread: The most popular sport in the world, even if most the forum populace either couldn’t care less or half calls it football when the other half calls it soccer. Whatever it is, post here if you want to talk about the sport and to keep the football spam away from the rest of Culture & Media.
PokeCommunity Radio - Want to listen to music while chatting with some of your C&M friends? You can do just that if you come and hang out in the official PokeCommunity Radio!
